As the entire state of Florida methodically sets the groundwork for getting back to life as we knew it before the COVID-19 virus, access to expanded COVID-19 testing has never been more important. AssociatesMD is pleased to be one of the important drive-thru testing sites to offer nasal swab testing, starting Monday, May 4, 2020. Whether or not you have symptoms, you can do your part to help Florida get back to life as before by getting tested. Whether or not you have insurance, there are no out of pocket fees.
Why Get Tested?
Unveiling an initiative called “Safe. Smart. Step-by-Step,” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Wednesday (4.29.20) announced his plan to begin reopening the state and begin a slow climb from the economic abyss caused by the coronavirus. Getting tested is the cornerstone to getting us back to life before COVID-19.
According to Gov. DeSantis, “Testing provides the critical help for business to reopen and allows the state to gauge if the infection rate in our community remains low or whether we need to readjust our plans because of a rebound in the virus’ presence.”
